It was an interesting experiment, but Fallout 76 clearly needs an offline mode, if that's even possible this point.
I’ll say it again: ‘Fallout 76’ needs a new engine.
Fallout has needed a new engine for years. I know many look at Fallout with Rose tinted glasses on but they are ugly, bug ridden messes. It might tell a good story and have interesting characters but the gameplay is slow clunky and a chore to play. Some people woke up at FO4 a lot of people are waking up with FO76. Bethesda needs to cut the excuses and admit they need a new engine ASAP.
actually looks beautiful in areas in game...the issue is they didnt update a lot of the character models and other assets...the new assets looks great.
Now look at how shit environment textures are. I'm still waiting for fully fleshed out ground textures
A new engine is what's needed. Bethesda using the same engine for what, 10 years now, is ridiculous. Its not doing any favors for their games.
The engine was dated 10 years ago
I'll say it again.... what it needs is a new fun mode. Yes the engine sucks, but even bugs can be fun. This game is void of all things fun, even with friends.
Fallout 76 needs a director with a clear vision for what he's doing
How about a story? Not fallout lite: online sandbox, no PvP allowed
"if that's even possible this point" how could it be? An offline mode would essentially be your character in an empty world.
There will be content updates like ESO, and there’s absolutely no reason they couldn’t add NPC’s to give the game some life. A few robots and holotapes don’t make the world feel any less empty, and the few encounters with real people certainly aren’t a substitute from scripted NPC’s at all.
It should have never been online to begin with...
It would need an actual story and good NPCs for that to make sense. Then again, it doesn't make a lot of sense the way it is.
Honestly speaking Fallout 76 should have never been made, instead they should've focused on making Starfield.
No, It really dows not. Not at freak’n all. Figure out what they did with the engine and WHY before spouting a conclusion. cough...atlas ...cough. “contributer” reviews from brand sites for that little name “badge of honor”. So cute.
If that's the case just play Fallout 4.
This game needs to be uninstalled, and move on.
